Receiver Antonio Callaway plunged to round four of the draft. He’s quickly risen to the top of the Cleveland depth chart.
Rookie Baker Mayfield, as expected, appears as the second-string quarterback, behind Tyrod Taylor and ahead of Drew Stanton. The depth chart also lists former starting left guard Joel Bitonio as the first-string left tackle, ahead of Shon Coleman and Greg Robinson. Austin Corbett is the first-stringer at Bitonio’s former position.
Veteran right guard Kevin Zeitler, a big-money free-agent arrival in 2017, appears on the third string, possibly because of a calf injury that is expected to shelve him for a couple of weeks.
Defensively, top-five pick Denzel Ward has made it to the first-string as a cornerback. Terrance Mitchell is the other first-sting cornerback, and Jabrill Peppers and Damarious Randall are the starting safeties.
Peppers is the first kickoff and punt returner, with Callaway listed as his backup.
